You know how that old poem goes …
Here is the church town house
Here is the steeple
Open the doors
And see all the people
Here is the crane
Taking down the steeple
For historic renovations
But it will be put back there again eventually
Read all about it in Friday’s Valley News.
For now, you can watch a video of the scene in Strafford today, courtesy of Celeste Pfeiffer!
But wait! There’s more!
Mark Shaw, of SkyView VT, has graciously shared a 3D tour of the town house that is pretty neat! Take a look below.
